Brakes release if bleeder screw opened up? If so it's most likely the mast. cyl. Fluid can't retun.

All brakes have fluid coming out the bleeder valve
Replypushrod, August 16, 2013, 06:55Master
That's not what i ask! Does opening the bleeder release the brakes so the wheel will spin? You said the brakes were locked!!
Replydsmith4812, August 16, 2013, 08:36Rookie
yes if I release the bleeder valve it does release the pads

Only thing left is the master cyl is not letting the fluid flow back into the reservoir. IF you replaced both hoses and both calipers.
May need some hands on help from a mechanic.
Good luck with it, let others know what fixes this by posting results later.
